WARREN COUNTY, NY – The Warren County Board of Supervisors voted Friday, February 16, 2024 to make appointments to the Warren County Ethics Board for 2024-25.

The Board of Supervisors chose five members and two alternates, acting on the recommendations of a search panel that included county supervisors and Warren County Administrator John Taflan. The panel vetted applications from 25 applicants during process that began in January because the prior Ethic Board’s two-year term of service expired at the end of 2023.

  • Paula Hayes, banking professional (alternate)

Kevin Geraghty, Warrensburg Town Supervisor and Chairman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors, said: “I would like to thank everyone who applied to be part of the Board of Ethics. I consider serving on this board one of the most important jobs in government. We hold our staff and elected officials to high standards in Warren County, and we strive to conduct business in an above board manner at all times. Having a strong Board of Ethics is necessary to ensure there are the necessary checks and balances, and we are confident the members of this board will be up to the task of making certain that your county government acts honestly and ethically.”
